It's Ours!

We got the house! After a last minute glitch on Friday the closing date got changed to Monday, so late Monday afternoon Paul and I sat in the lawyers office and officially became homeowners!

My brother, who is here visiting for two weeks, and I went over to the house yesterday and started tearing up carpet and taking down wall paper.

I think I'm a bit over ambitious.
It is exhausting work, and we're only working in the Dining Room!

We won't be moving in until late next week due to Paul's work schedule - at first I thought it would be a great opportunity to get most of the painting done in the house, but now I'm not so sure how much will get done before we move in :)

And I still don't know how I want to paint any of the other rooms of the house!
I could spend hours looking at colors and styles for rooms, but when it comes down to deciding what I want for our home, I'm not really sure!

Both the boys adore their Uncle Caleb - his name comes out something like "M-Caya" from Judah.
